    Halloween Candles {Guest Post}

    Posted by  ·  September 8, 2012

    Hi! I’m so happy to guest post here on Skip to my Lou!

    I’m Becky, one of the 5 contributors over at The Crafting Chicks. We love to share all sorts of creative ideas to inspire your life. Come visit us!


    I’m getting so excited for fall. One of the funnest holidays is Halloween do you think?!? I’m not into all the creepy, scary, bloody things. I like the fun cute things. What better way to have fun with Halloween decor then making Halloween character faces on votive candle holders?

    I found a 6 pack of clear votive candle holders at Hobby Lobby and thought I could do something fun and festive with them.

    I used DecoArt glass paint to just paint one layer over each of the glass votives. I followed all the directions on the paint.


    Once the paint was dry, I use the Deco Art 3D Opaque Glass Writers for the faces. It was so fun to draw fun faces on these little guys!

    Super easy and fun.

    Once the paint is completely dry, drop your candles in and light them up for some Halloween fun!

    Aren’t they cute?!

    Thanks tons for having me. Please stop by and see what other fun things we’re up to at The Crafting Chicks.

      Many high quality travel companion sites are
      available especially for ladies who wish to experience both Greece and
      Turkey on the same trip. The latest disney travel packages instalment
      of Nathans Villa Hostel was always likely to be involved in
      a car accident than a plane 2008.

      These are so cute and easy. My kids love to paint and I am always looking for things they can do with me. Maybe we will give these a try.
